With a heat wave covering much of the country, resulting in power outages, there is one issue I haven't heard much about. That is over-air conditioning. It's nice to walk into a really cold room after I've been walking around in 98-degree heat. I've been noticing more and more, however, that within a few minutes of being inside I get cold.

I have spoken to a few friends about this, and they have noticed the same thing, so it's not just me who is having a problem with a temperature level in many buildings. I understand the businesses want to be cool for their customers and employees, but it isn't comfortable when I'm getting goosebumps and having to rub my arms to stay warm.

It is a waste of energy, and perhaps there would be fewer blackouts if those buildings turned their thermostats up by just a few degrees.

Hello from Jargon Chicago Magazine,

We are a new online culture and style magazine focused on Chicago. We like to think that we successfully mix content with wit in our effort to explore all the unique characteristics of our city. However, we need help. We need people with more interests, in more neighborhoods, and with more perspectives on the City.

Having read your posted writing, we think you would be a good fit at the magazine. We can't offer any kind of compensation at this time (because we aren't making a profit at the moment). But we are in the middle of a PR/marketing campaign that should change that, and paying our writers will be one of our first priorities. However, we think that writing for us will be a fun experience despite the lack of compensation, and it's one more way to get your voice out to people on the Internet.

The Editors
